2015 NPAA Magazine 2015 volume 1 - Page 37

WHY DID I CHOOSE TO COMPETE WITH NPAA? I chose NPAA because it was an all natural association, and I am a strong believer in that. Also knew that NPAA was family oriented and that really stood out to me as a mom of four beautiful kids ages 17, 14, 12, and 9. I wanted to present a physique that was all natural and stand up there representing all mom out there who sacrifices her body for the birth of her children. WHO DO I HOPE TO INSPIRE? I want to inspire anyone who reads my story, anyone out there who thinks that there isn’t any hope to change their health and fitness around no matter what their situation. Moms, Dads, kids, Friends, Family, and complete strangers. If I can do this, anyone can!! You make the decision to change, make those sacrifices, find your discipline, dedicate yourself and get that passion! Set some goals and work hard each day towards then big or small. Along the way I promise you will fall and have to pick yourself back up but you will get there! Strong Mind, Strong Body! MY FAVORITE BODY PART TO TRAIN? Of course my glutes, claves and shoulders!! I love seeing small details carve themselves out when you add in clean nutrition and hard work at the gym! MY FAVORITE CLEAN EATING SNACK? Well for summer, I love some Plain Greek Yogurt, 1/2 cup mixed fresh berries drizzled with some Waldens chocolate sauce. Also I love anything I can have with some natural Almond Butter!! WHAT DO I WANT TO ACHIEVE WITH NPAA, SOME LONG TERM GOALS? I would love to compete again with NPAA, bring a better package to stage, and bring along all my friends and family to the show this time!! Athletic goals, would be to compete and one day maybe even win that PRO Card! :)
